New initiative to empower muslim students through sexual education
Most schools across Australia have sexual health as part of the curriculum, and is taught from preschool to year 12.
But most resources are not culturally safe for Muslim students, and it needs to be created with the support of the community.
Researchers from Monash University and Independent Schools Victoria will develop a curriculum specifically designed for Muslim students in six different schools around safety awareness and sexual health.
We spoke to the lead researcher from the Faculty of Education at Monash University, Associate Professor, Fida Sanjakdar, on the purpose of the new program.
